capital of columbus. what are you hearing before the polls close, scott? >> reporter: well, bill, it is an important state for both candidates. for governor mitt romney, it is nearly essential in his path to 270 electoral votes. he's made two trips here in the last 24 hours. actually, even less than that. here today up in cleveland for a quick stop following a quick stop at the airport here in columbus last night. vice president joe biden was here today as well practically bumping into governor romney up in cleveland where he paid a visit today. and president obama last night here in columbus, a rally attended by about 15,000 people as well as bruce springsteen and jay-z. all of this has definitely got the attention of the voters in ohio. here at ohio state university, they have been lined up out the door at a polling place here at the ohio union. we're hearing reports of strong turnout throughout the state, including in areas that are heavily republican or heavily independent, which of course tends to favor governor romney. reverend jesse jackson has been here in the state since thi

battleground of ohio. he's in columbus. jeff: from bad upholstery to better weather but i tell you i still think i have the assignment because i'm at an obama rally here in columbus ohio where we are waitinggon bruce springsteen who will be out in a moment. the rapper jayz will be here as well. ohio as you know is probably the most watched state. i will tell you from what we have seen on the ground thus far, this get out the vote campaign on the part of the president is a strong one. their ground game is i think running at a very high level right now. so be very important for the republicans to get their vote out at the polls tomorrow as well. maybe you see this scene in the nationwide arena. i would say at this point, maybe 10, 12, 13,000, we're almost packed here. and the president's been using people like stevie wonder, jayz, bruce springsteen to energize his base to get those folks to the polls. also fun to hear bruce springsteen sing. liz: you definitely have the great assignment. although barnes gets to lean on that lovely seat. thank you. >> thank you. liz: we will try and dip in wh

the day after, just one day before the election, though. i want to show you this, the columbus dispatch which is a very conservative-leaning newspaper, has been in the past, had this deadline, quote, auto bailout could be the clincher. and they go on to say in this article if president obama wins ohio, it will be because of the bailout of gm and chrysler. if romney wins and i quote it will be because of the final days of the campaign he stopped fumbling his explanation on what he would have done with the two auto giants. do you believe that it was the bailout of the auto industry that won ohio for the president, mike? >> well, i think it was factor for both the president and i think it hurt the governor. for several years in the whole campaign, his position was at times confusing and incoherent. now, here's what i think the governor should have said right from the beginning. he should have said something along the lines of i support the fact that president bush allocated tarp funds to prevent an industrial armageddon on top of financial armageddon. and i applaud then president

columbus. no republican president has won the white house who has not won ohio. we're going to take you back to ohio a number of times as voters are hitting the polls across the country today. we have something we don't often see on election day, a big stock market rally. the dow industrials up 133 points today. what's the stock market telling us? good to have you on the program, gentlemen. thank you so much for joining us. let's talk about this rally. are you surprised, paul, that we have a triple-digit move? to what would you attribute such gains? >> good afternoon, maria. am i surprised? no, i'm not surprised. i don't think in the short term, meaning this week, the market says anything about the election. when you look back, as we are over the last 100 years, you have to look back from the week prior to the election and the two months prior to the election. so interestingly, though the polls two months ago showed that obama was really going to run away with it and it's been that way for the last 18 months, the market has really tightened the race, if you will. now it's almost a d
